Letter to the Society of Staffordshire Artists

“It was heartwarming and encouraging to visit the May 2017 Exhibition at Keele University and see so many good paintings. Even better, it was incredible that the Society had transformed itself from a recent very low point, and restored its reputation as a leading arts group. It was so good to see the names of former very active members again and, a very difficult thing to achieve, many members had blossomed afresh. With new, or renewed, members inspiring fresh approaches, and this spirit, the Society should now be fine well into the future. This could not have been achieved without belief, mutual support and sheer hard work. All credit to the new President and evidently a very active Committee and helpers, for inspiring the members to achieve this almost unbelievable resurgence. I wish you all good painting.”
